7 Ways Librarians Can Participate in Open Access/Source/Education Communities

Over @ OEDB.org librarian and editor Ellyssa Kroski has created a list of how librarians can contribute to the cause of open access. These are:

  1. Self-Archive Your Work
  2. Donate Your Syllabi
  3. Archive Your Podcasts and Edu Resources
  4. Use a Creative Commons Attribution License
  5. Publish An Open Access Journal
  6. Make Your Applications and Modules Open Source
  7. Share Your Slides

I currently do #4, 6, and 7 and am working on #3 so that’s more than half so I think I’m doing well in this area. (I don’t write syllabi, so there’s no way I can do all seven.)
